GNR will financially sponsor you by paying for other expenses towards writing the NCLEX-RN. These include but are not limited to US state board licensure, NCLEX-RN registration, flight, hotel, etc. As a foreign graduate, your nursing education has to be evaluated by a US credential evaluation company for it to be accepted for a US nursing career.

Step 5. Credential Evaluation and NCLEX-RN Review

Step 5A:
Credentials Evaluation
In step 5A we start the credentials evaluation process. GNR will pay for your transcript to be evaluated by the leading credentials evaluation company (CGFNS) in the US. When your transcript evaluation is complete, GNR will continue processing your documents towards the registration for the NCLEX and your RN Licensure.

Step 5B:

You will be taking periodic GNR tests which GNR will use to monitor your progress. An Intense High Yield GNR NCLEX-Review course will be given to you prior to scheduling you to take the exam.

**Please note that the date of your exam will be determined by your scores in the GNR periodic tests. As part of GNR’s policy to maintain a high pass rate of our nurses, we do not schedule you to take the NCLEX-RN until your scores in our internal assessments indicate a high chance of passing the NCLEX-RN in your first attempt.

If you fail to take the exam within that window, you will be required to pay out of your pocket to register again for the exam. After the successful completion of the NCLEX, the State Board will issue you a US license within 2-3 weeks. Your resume will be updated with your US RN License, and GNR will forward your resume to our partner company, “MedStar Staffing”.
